I know what you all are thinking. The Wolves, seriously? Yes we are talking about the Chicago Wolves of the American Hockey League.
Yesterday the Wolves advanced to the Western Conference Finals with a win over there rivals to the north, the Milwaukee Admirals.
The Chicago Wolves scored two goals in the first period and held on behind a 14-save performance from Goalie Peter Mannio to win the deciding Game 7 of the West Division Semifinal against the Milwaukee Admirals at the Allstate Arena Monday night. Anthony Stewart of the Wolves scored the first goal for the Wolves and they never looked back.
“We put in 60 minutes. I really liked our game overall,” said Wolves Head Coach Don Lever. “You’ve got to hand them credit. We played two real solid periods and they wouldn’t go away. They never stopped coming at us.”
An excellent performance all around sends the Wolves to the Western Conference Final against the Texas Stars. First game Friday night at the All-State Arena
